On Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors hosted the Los Angeles Clippers for the first game in their new arena.

Shortly after tipoff from the Chase Center, the Warriors were down 11-0 in a shocking turn of events for the Golden State faithful.

Unfortunately for the Warriors, things got even worse when All-Star forward Draymond Green suffered what appeared to be a shoulder injury.

According to multiple reports, Green went back into the locker room after setting a tough screen in the opening quarter.

Here's the play.

After setting the screen, Green had difficulty lifting his arm to play defense. He left the game and has not returned.

Golden State has not made an announcement about Green's status for the rest of the game.

The Warriors are already without star guard Klay Thompson, who suffered a torn ACL in the NBA Finals this summer.

Add in the fact that Kevin Durant took his talents to Brooklyn in free agency and the Warriors are down to just Steph Curry in terms of stars on the court.

Curry will have to carry the load while Thompson is out, but the Warriors hope to have Green back on the floor soon.

Stay tuned for the latest.
